Condo Owners Plagued by Tainted Chinese Drywall

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Chinese drywall is causing odors and metal corrosion in condos, as well as single family homes.  The reports coming in from condo owners are  yet another indication of just how widespread Chinese drywall problems really are.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) has been investigating the problems with Chinese drywall for several months.  According to SunSentinal.com, the agency has so far received 365 complaints about Chinese drywall from homeowners in 18 states. Fumes from the drywall have been blamed for causing foul odors, sinus and respiratory problems, and metal corrosion in buildings where it has been installed. 

The CPSC currently has investigators in all states – with the exception of Wyoming – where the problems have been reported. In addition the CSC has launched a new online Drywall Information Center to help homeowners keep track of the agency’s investigation.  The site also  has information that can help consumers determine if their homes were built with the contaminated product.  Consumers can also access the site to file a drywall complaint.

According to a report in the Charlotte Sun-Herald,  tainted Chinese drywall was just discovered in one building in the  luxury Vivante condominium complex in Punta Gorda Isles, Florida. According to the Sun-Herald, the Chinese drywall at the Vivante complex was discovered in March in Building 5 of the Boca Lago section.  The developer of the complex maintains  that the  Chinese drywall problem is confined to that one building because the putrid smells and other problems associated with the material have not been reported elsewhere in the complex.

A spokesperson for the complex told the Sun-Herald that bout 70 percent of the units tested in Building 5 of Boca Lago had at least some of the tainted drywall. Only about 40 percent of that building’s 45 units have been tested to date.

The Bonita Springs law firm of Parker Waichman LLP, the first firm to file a federal class action lawsuit over Chinese drywall, has confirmed that condo owners and condo associations have called the firm looking for help with their Chinese drywall problems.

We’ve previously reported that Chinese drywall was the subject of complaints at the 240-unit Harbor Walk condo complex in Norfolk, VA. Condo owners there have filed a lawsuit against the complex’s developer.  And in April, we reported that residents of the 90-unit Magdalena Gardens in Punta Gorda, Florida had claimed that fumes from Chinese drywall had made them sick and had caused corrosion problems.
